  • Dave turned 25! 


  • We joined the Todd family spring break in Las Vegas for some shopping, sunshine, and good company! (Dave & BT snuck in a golf game with Aaron Papa which was definitely a highlight)
  • I decided NOT to take the job and still leave MS and give myself some time off to decide what I wanted my next move to be.
